Okay here's the scoop. I am selling this boat and my bay boat. I will be buying an offshore capable 23-25 foot Contender, Competition, BlueWater, ?
with single 250-350 power. Something that I can reasonablly fish inshore any day, run to the reefs most days, and hit the stream on the nice days. Within a year or so I will be doing a new build in the 32 to 34 foot range and want to bank some funds.. I see a charleston built cat or a south florida v something in my future.
